Frozen screen on ''aquiring satelite''


Try resetting the I5. Hold the left button, the wheel button and the power button down at the same time. Keep holding until the screen say that " Do you really want to erase all user data?" Select Yes and then restart the I5.

Garmin Nuvi 760 loses satelite reception. Tried to reset to factory settings and still having problem.


You may need to buy an additional external GPS receiving antenna. I did for my 750.
Because we love our electronics so tiny, they use an internal antenna. The gold input on the back of it, is for an external antenna available for under $20 from ebay. I used it when I lost reception in NYC, and also in rural areas. The external one has q magnet on it, and you can put it on the roof and have the cord come in your window to the unit (better than arm out window!)

check here - where i bought mine

Map is hung says finding satelite


Install the maps again with the cd provided just like you did the first time. And try leaving it outside in the open sky for a while. Once it finds signal it doesn't usually loose it. And also try to install the latest update from the garmin's website. http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=010-00434-00

Garmin gps, novi


What do you see if you use it in the open air? Same thing?
Some cars have a metal coating on the windows that works as a sun block, usually french cars. In these cars satellite reception is poor and this can be a reason for bad reception. Sometimes these problems also occur when a cell phone is too close to the gps. The gps does need line of sight to the sky to get a good signal, usually stuck to the windshield is sufficient.

I would recommend calling Garmin direct. They may be able to provide a registration code to you.

Locating satelites


Are you outside, exposed to the GPS signals?

If so, have you tried resetting the unit?

Remove the face cover (GENTLY pry it loose by using the fingernail groove directly under the GARMIN logo), press the RESET button, then re-attach front cover... this is covered in the owners manual, also available online at garmin.com /support /downloads
